Thursday Arch Series

.
I took this picture right after U "R" Us and I finished shooting the new blog header. (By the way, he's put up some hilarious posts about Santa Kong in Chicago, which he describes as "Chicago's oldest and most heralded Whiskey Santa Rampage.") I gotta tell ya, this is one cool monument to live around. With our terrible suburban sprawl, I bet a great part of the populace hasn't seen it in person for ages. Mostly just on TV or the logo of about every third local business (including our firm's web site, but at least that's my photo).

Weekend Project: I'm going to try to resurrect Gateway, my all-Arch photo blog that has been dormant for almost four months. I was trying to shoot new material for it and this weekly feature and I just don't have time. But, since that blog is only there to glorify the big wicket, there is no reason I can't post Arch pix shown here in the past or anything else in my archives. I'll make a note if I get it done.

I don't think I could ever tire of your arch photos, Bob. They really are majestic.

This is a great shot!

Excellent shot. The deep colours, vapour trails and high clouds add a fascinating dimension.

Resurrection of Gateway instead of reading a good book? ;-)

A spaceship has landed in St-Louis on a beautiful clear autumn day. Come and check it out on Bob's blog! ;-) Superb shot.
